Glitter and pigments are holiday-makeup must haves, but once the festivities are over — and all you want to do is hit the sheets — you're left with the trying task of sparkle removal. We, along with Patrick Starrr, are here to tell you that it doesn't have to be that hard.

To take off glitter (and pretty much any other difficult-to-remove makeup), Starrr uses a genius combination of two gentle products: "I'll grab a makeup-removing wipe and squirt one to two pumps of cleansing oil for a double-duty makeup remover," he told POPSUGAR, "You get the power of both cleansers in one, minus the mess in your sink because you're not splashing around the oil and makeup." His choice for this hack are these MAC Wipes ($30) and MAC Gently Off Eye and Lip Makeup Remover ($22) (it's worth noting that Starrr is an ambassador for the brand). "The combination is also extra gentle on the eyes since you don't have to tug," he said.

There you have it: the easiest way to remove glitter, courtesy of the master of glitter himself.
